i have a hen whos been sitting on her nest in the bushes since mid day yesterday. i took her off late afternoon yesterday and she walked around normally for a while. she went back to the nest and i had to put her on her perch at sunset and she was holding her tail down but i couldn’t tell if it was a sign of discomfort or just sleepiness. i fed her some whole eggs right before bedtime for calcium and protein. i’ve felt her abdomen three times since yesterday and i don’t feel an egg or any contractions. she doesn’t fight me when i pick her up but shes laying flat on the nest with her rear in the air. is she just broody? tyia
